Why do we suffer under the wrath of a needle? Is it the love of the art, or the bond between an artist and a friend? Everyone has there own answer to the question. Wether it is because they want to have something on their body that means something very dear to them, such as a parent’s name, a relative’s portrait who’s no longer with them, or even a friendship tattoo. We’ve all endured countless hours of pain in order to be able to express the way they feel about ourselves and to let the tattoo express what it means to us.
We come into tattoo shops day in and day out with the anxiety of getting our first tattoo. What we don’t realize is how much some of them will hurt. Do we let that stop us? Not at all. For our boy Boston Bob, pain is no stranger. He’s carries some of Jose’s most amazing work all over his body and he’s had to deal with the pain and suffering of getting them. After all the torture, Boston Bob always seems to come back for more.
“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
– Lance Armstrong
We would also like to send a huge shoutout to the homie Pint. Without Pint’s work, The inspiration for the above piece would not have come together so smoothly. His work inspires a lot of us here at Lowrider as well as the many people he has inspired all over the world. He has no idea on what kind of impact he’s made in the tattoo community.
